Carnival 2011 Rio de Janeiro - The Straight Line Project

We decided to go Rio de Janeiro during carnival to create an art project about straight lines. We took on the vast task to try to arrange the whole sambadrome audience in a straight line. We thought it would be quite powerful to sort of marry the playful samba with the feeling of order, and sort of create an illusion of something almost divine. I think we really succeeded. We couldn’t really get the guys to listen but at least we managed to arrange the toilet-queue in a straight line. We had forgotten our camera but we took a mental picture and I think that was even better – really quite powerful.
